Call for Continuing Education Workshop Proposals

       ICP 2004 Convention

Shandong Hotel, Jinan, China


Elizabeth S. Bishop, Ph.D., Continuing Education Committee Chair


The Continuing Education Committee is now soliciting proposals for 2004 from members who plan to attend the Jinan conference. Continuing Education workshops will take place on the first two days of the conference, August 3 and 4, 2004, before the scientific sessions start. We have found that half-day workshops (4 C.E. credits) are much preferred by our members over full-day (8 C.E. credits) workshops but the Committee will consider full-day workshops if that is the best format for your topic. Preference will be given to workshops with a cross-cultural focus, those related to the conference theme, and/or those offered by co-presenters from more than one country.


If you would like to offer a workshop, please submit a proposal by January 15, 2004, which includes the following information:


1.    A description of the content and procedure of your workshop, not to exceed three pages. Please include six (6) objectives, and a list of audio-visual and/or other equipment needed. Please note that ICP may not be able to provide A/V equipment. If we can do so, it will only be an overhead projector and screen so plan accordingly.

2.    On a separate page provide a condensed description of the workshop (200-250 words). At the top of the page include the title of the workshop, your name, professional affiliation, and your city and country.

3.    A short bibliography relevant to your presentation.

4.    A brief vita for each presenter (if there is more than one). Include previous experience, if any,  relevant to presenting workshops.


Workshop presenters will be expected to register for the conference. They will be paid a modest remuneration, based on the number of participants registered for the workshop, the country from which the participants come and whether or not they are students. If a workshop has more than one presenter, then the fees received for that workshop will be divided up among the participants. Payment will equal one half of the workshop fees collected, up to $250 (US). ICP will give continuing education credit to workshop participants in accordance with standards set by the American Psychological Association (APA). While APA has given approval to ICP to offer continuing education for psychologists, ICP maintains responsibility for the programs.


Those wishing to submit proposals can do so by mail, fax, or email. Send your proposal to: Elizabeth S. Bishop, Ph.D., ICP Continuing Education Chair at 1565 Eastover Place, Ann Arbor, MI 48104 USA, or fax to ++734-741-9038 or email to Proposals will be evaluated by the Continuing Education Committee and decisions made early in 2004. We look forward to receiving your proposals and anticipate a wonderful choice of workshops in Jinan.
